Subject description: All dependencies found.
 

@Aragorn.

Thanks for the pointer, with the missing dependencies listed I managed to track all of them down and install them - libwv took some finding! - and Abiword now runs. All I have to do now is set up the dictionary/spell-checker for ' proper ' ( UK ) English Wink, and I think I can remember how to do that, or at least where to find the relevant threads. One tip for anyone else in a similar position, make sure you install the right version of pets, I initially installed goffice 0.5, no joy, 0.6 was what was needed.

@ Nekroze

sorry overlooked.

a) smp
no it's not, as puppy 4.21 is not. there is actually no barebones-version with smp (i think)

b) problems unleashed
basically, you should follow http://puppylinux.com/development/puppy-unleashed.htm

potential pitfalls:
- do all steps in puppy!
- partition-type: ext2, etx3 or reiserfs partition
- download the packages directly to the correct 'packages'-folder.

for more help, we'll need more info and exact error-messages.

There is g_pup (search for it in this forum) but it is based on 4.1.2.

With quite a few US friends on the Fedora forum and relatives in Australia I can endorse the saying ' two nations divided by a common language '! As for en_CY ( Welsh ) and Irish english, the mind boggles!

You're right, my brain seems to have i/o-errors. i will have to run smartctl to check.

Nekroze,

?? On what kind of filesystem filesystem is the tar.gz stored ??

!! Maybe simple use the gui-archiving tool to extract !!

@ Nekroze:
Let me guess, you mounted an ext3 partition to extract your unleashed on... If the tar uncompresses in spite of the read-only errors, I wouldn't worry about them. I have that all the time and tar is uncompressing fine.

@ Aragon:
I apologize in advance for the many questions that follow; please feel free to ignore them...
I am not 100% sure what building on unleashed really does. Do you rebuild everything from scratch, including the drivers and modules? If yes did you strip out some of them to the price of compatibility?
Does the package list attached in your first post basically state the content of Barebones? If yes, I can't see <package> (replace <package> by anything, like geany, seamonkey, cups, etc...) in the list, how do I install it (I know how to build from source, but of course .pet or PPM way is more than welcome Wink )

i won't, to ask them seems to be traceable (for me).

no, basically you're combining the official packages in your own way, with an official release as a template.

if we are talking about kernel-modules: no.

you can't see as nothing replaces nothing... this is the concept of a barebone-puppy. it's just a base to build your own puppy.

simply with the package-manager (or any other way you like and is useable in puppy).

Excellent, therefore Barebones seems to be the best way to start creating some personalized puppy. Thanks for your work and for sharing your effort.

Could be the filesystem you are extracting to. I tried over a network drive under an NTFS environment and got a bunch of errors too.
